The SX lives to barrel down slalom courses, launch off seemingly impossible jumps, sniff out every line on a technical trail, and score on every obstacle in the park. If you’re thinking chairlift on the way up and big air on the way down, the SX is built with ample travel, solid traction, and insane durability.
WHAT Ultra-durable, yet lightweight alloy frame
with Freeride-focused geometry.
WHY To withstand big jumps and highspeed
hits, over and over again, while
giving the rider superior handling.
HOW By redesigning the frame, we were able to
make room for more travel and carefully
manipulate the tubes to maintain strength,
while keeping weight low. Our proven
Freeride geometry keeps the frame
angles slack and low for better handling.
Hydroformed Seat Tube
WHAT Customized seat tube shape, achieved
through hydroforming processes.
WHY Eliminates forgings and, therefore, reduces
weight—all while maintaining the strength
required by aggressive freeriders.
HOW High pressure fluid is forced through each
tube to eliminate welds and achieve more
precise tube shaping.
WHAT Proprietary linkage system featuring a main
pivot with eccentric spindle and wishbone
WHY Creates a stiffer rear end for more
dependable handling in every situation.
HOW The eccentric spindle uses an offset bolt
location that can only key in at one position,
leaving the two sides of the link no room to
twist. This prevents any unwanted flex or
rotation that could sacrifice precision and
confidence at the rear end of the bike.
